The Next Step.​

I'll start with the basics first

My Set Up

My grow space is a homemade wooden box measuring approximately 2x2x2.5ft or 600x600x800mm. painted white on the inside. Lighting is supplied by the marsll 400w and sits in a cutout in the top of the box after the first couple of days I will will set the timer to run the gas lantern routine. Airflow and filtration is sorted out with a 4 inch fan that moves 105m3/h and a carbon filter. There is also a 6 inch fan shifting the air about inside. Main potsite are 2 x 11 liter fabric pots filled with a premixed living organic soil.

Ever since I started my growing journey over 18 month ago, I've always had a longing to grow in an organic soil (of some description) but never actually did anything other than look at the options. Until now. Growing in a small space does have its challenges when choosing the soil that I grow in. I looked at docs kit, the basic kit produces around 60 gallons of soil. What am I gonna do with 60 gallons of soil when only 1 seven gallon pot fits in my space? Tie that with the cost of shipping the kit to the UK and I decided it was a non starter.
So I settled on a living organic soil. Being the clever stoner that I am, instead of sourcing everything I need for the mix and ending up with massive amounts of soil, having to go through the "is my mix good?" bits, I found a UK company that will ship small volumes of pre mixed Los soil direct to my door and All I had to do was put the soil into the pots and water it in. How hard could that be. Even I could do that. I spoke with the supplier at length about the issues and problems of using Los in smaller pots but he did agree that with a few ammendments during the cycle it was possible to keep the soil alive. And after seeing some of his soil in action by a few different growers on instagram, I placed an order.

A few weeks later and I was ready to go. I had enough Los soil for 2 x 11 liter fabric pots with enough room for top dressings. All I had to do then was decide what seeds to plant.

I settled on jack herer and after seeing how much Pigeons420 loved it the other had to be a Hollands Hope

After I put the pots in the box and seeing how much room I had I also put 4 autos in solo cups filled with a generic compost, they will stay in those cups. The autos are Lime Daiquiri, White Widow, Auto Purps And Critical+

The 2 big pot seeds have come up, I've given them a misting every hour or so tonight and if they are still on tomorrow I'll assist in the removal.

Until then my friends :48::48::48::48:

I like crowded. Welcome :48:

:35: I'm here! I'm here! Hahaha! Front row, I made it!

Cup autos. Oooooh! I wanna a mini auto plant too! I'm jealous but I don't want to use a precious seed so I will live vicariously through you. :laugh2:

Good to have ya here. I don't have as many auto seeds as I thought but.... I do have a hundred or so of my own bred seeds. Cross between a pineapple express male and a kalashnikova auto. I had one outside in the green house this year, it did something considering the life it had. I'll get a joint if I'm lucky. Strongest smelling cannabis I ever did smell tho.

Welcome weenmeoff, you learn quickly how to manage the space you don't have.:48:

It's awesome that you went with a living soil. Excited to see what you do with it. Any plans for these ladies training wise? Good luck Am4zin.

:48:

:ciao: Nis. No plans for training on this run. Wing it and fill the space is the plan. Don't think that will be an issue with 6 plants going tho.
